How this newer word snuck — or sneaked — into language


Whether you should use “snuck” or “sneaked” depends on a few factors, according to Grammar Girl.

If you’re British, the answer is more clearly “sneaked,” but if you’re American, you’ll need to decide how formal you’d like to be.

But no matter what, Mignon Fogarty wants language purists to know: “Snuck” may be newer and more casual, but it’s still definitely a word.
